  • I really loved Balmers! It's right by a bus stop and around the corner from a supermarket. the staff was amazing! They were extremely courteous, and VERY willing to recommend activities and hikes. It's a very social hostel, with a good party culture at night. But, I also met people during the day! The common areas were fantastic: there are a lot different areas for relaxing and socializing. But, the rooms are very small, without lockers in the rooms, and lockers aren't free.

  • Balmers was a pretty cool hostel, and I'd recommend it. Also, they serve breakfast which is nice before heading up into the mountains to hike.

  • Very good hostel! I just think it would be better if they had some lockers inside the rooms. Other then this, it was a very good stay.
